Ceramics Additive Manufacturing Markets, 2028 - Market Driven by Strong CAGR in End-Use Part Production

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Oct. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Ceramics Additive Manufacturing Markets 2017-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The report titled, Ceramics Additive Manufacturing Markets 2017-2028 projects that the ceramics 3D printing market is expected to generate overall revenues for over $3.6 billion, driven by strong CAGR in end-use part production.

In this second report from the researcher on ceramics additive manufacturing, readers will learn about the most up to date market data and analysis of market trends at the professional and industrial level. The report breaks down the ceramics 3D printing opportunity across numerous user industries as well as different AM technologies, materials and material supports, part types and geographical market regions.

The report analyzes pros, cons and generated revenues of the dominant AM technologies for processing ceramics, both technical (advanced) and traditional /(clay-like). These include material extrusion, photopolymerization and binder jetting 3D printing technologies. Currently available high-end industrial system data are complemented by a deep analysis of new and emerging technologies such as low-cost hardware systems and new jetting processes. All analyses are supported with hardware and material market shipments, sales, installations, and future forecasts through 2028 to provide a fully comprehensive insight into the future of ceramic 3D printing.

In 2018, the ceramics additive manufacturing market is focusing on AM part production, benefiting from the experience acquired by adopters and system OEM's who are working with metal and polymer technologies. Ceramics AM, however, presents a distinct set of advantaged and challenges which are explored in detail in this report, along with the latest successful use cases. The researcher believes that a proper understanding of the opportunity in ceramics 3D printing technology worldwide requires both a deep understanding of the individual nature of each print technology, but also an understanding of the interrelationship between these technologies and a specific family of ceramic materials, to fully understand how they can be integrated within current industrial manufacturing options.

Companies developing materials and providing ceramics additive manufacturing services or specific applications have come to understand that additive manufacturing's extreme geometric capabilities are proving to ideal for production of complex ceramic parts in all major ceramic adoption segments. These include the aerospace, automotive, marine, energy, electronics, medical, dental and biomedical segments, which are already among the first adopters of AM technologies. In this report the researcher will provide updated information on all major players and movers in the ceramic AM market, including Lithoz, 3D Ceram Sinto, Admatec, Prodways, Tethon 3D, 3D Systems, Kwambio, voxeljet, ExOne, HP, Johnson Matthey, Nanoe, XJet and several more.

From the Report:

  • In this currently forecasted timeline, ceramics AM adoption will experience an inflection point after 2025 as all major AM technologies that support ceramics production come to maturity and enjoy a sufficient presence in the market to support actual serial production. The researcher is currently forecasting that this shift will be driven by imitating and benefiting from the experience of powder metal additive manufacturing. In particular the adoption of CIM- (ceramics injection molding) based additive manufacturing processes is expected to drive larger batch production in the same way as MIM- (metal injection molding) based additive processes are now expected to significantly expand AM adoption and throughput capabilities, lowering costs.
  • Final parts value for both technical and traditional ceramic parts is expected to represent the most significant opportunities driving the market for the medium to long term future. Compared to relatively low revenues generated by technical and traditional ceramic materials, this trend indicated that in ceramics AM more than in any other material family, the primary value is in the process. This means that that additively manufacturing a ceramic part increases the value of the material used to produce it several times.
  • Ceramics AM technologies are now largely available so perhaps the biggest challenge to address today is the creation of market demand. Many companies that produce ceramic components, especially advanced ceramic components, could be benefiting significantly from subassemblies and DfAM (Design for Additive Manufacturing) ceramic parts but in many cases still need to imagine, envision, design and develop the parts that will make ceramic AM processes and materials truly cost effective.
